To identify primary care providers in Texas and California, the research team started by first looking for a definition of primary care. According to the Texas' Health and Human Services Department, primary care providers are physicians "who indicate that they have a primary specialty of general practice, family practice/medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and/or gynecology, or geriatrics and are a sub-set of direct patient care physicians”. Having established a clear definition we reviewed insurance providers' lists, medical associations, state department websites for potential primary provider. Using this strategy we found a good number of providers. Where clinics or health systems had physicians serving a various conditions, we first checked to see if they indicated 'primary care' physicians. Where there was no clear classification of 'primary care' providers the team sought physicians who identified themselves as primary providing family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and/or gynecology, or geriatrics services. Additionally, we excluded physician assistants, nurses and all other supportive staff. In terms of location, the team only included locations that provide primary care services (especially where the clinic or hospital had numerous locations).
